GEORGETOWN, P.E.I. —

Once upon a time, DuffleBag Theatre parked a steamer trunk filled with props and costumes under a tree, gathered a crowd and let the magic begin. 

Now, the company regularly travels across Canada, the United States and occasionally around the globe to different theatres, festivals and performance spaces.

On Sunday, Dec. 29 at 6:30 p.m., the members of the troupe will unpack their steamer trunk once again at Kings Playhouse in Georgetown.

They’ll bring the well-loved classic “Little Red Riding Hood” to the stage.  

Grandma is sick! Little Red Riding Hood is determined to visit her with a basket of goodies on the other side of the woods.

Unfortunately, the Big Bad Wolf, waiting within, makes some lunch plans of his own. It’s a good thing a helpful lumberjack is on hand when Little Red learns why Grandma’s teeth are so big.

Dufflebag creates theatrical magic by inviting audience members as the stars of the show. The result is an exciting, interactive and unique experience for the young and the young at heart.
